“Delicious dinner”
Reviewed 9 May 2012

We ate dinner at Merlo before seeing the Million Dollar Quartet at the Apollo. Our dinner was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend it.

We had dinner here last night and loved it. The Osso bucco was wonderful. Wonderful homemade pasta. Would return again.

“Excellent Northern Italian Cruisine; Fine Service”
Reviewed 13 August 2011

A special find. Excellent selections of northern Italian crusine, with added superb specialties. Attentive service. Fine Italian wine list. This is the second time we have dined here, and both times we have had a wonderful experience.

Reviewed 31 July 2011

Brutally cold room in July. Only transient response to our polite request for relief. Food average Except for delicious pasta. Poor value.
